A Better Bath Bomb Recipe

My little bath bomb is still drying on the kitchen counter. In the meantime, I received an email from a friend who really knows how to make bath bombs. I’ve included her formula and a few tips at the bottom.

Also, if you are serious about making bath bombs, you’ll need a source. I’m planning on ordering some materials from this company called Brambleberry. I’m sure there are lots of other sources. If you know of a good one, please send it to me and I’ll put a link here.

If all this sounds too intimidating, you can just order some bombs from Lush.

Bath Bomb

4 TBSP baking soda
1 TBSP corn starch
1 TBSP goatsmilk powder (or omit and use 2 TBSP corn starch)
just over 1 TBSP of epsom salts

1 tsp meadowfoam oil
approx 1 tsp liquid shea
a touch of water
a few drops of fragrance oil and color if desired

2 TBSP citric acid

Here are the notes:
Epsom salts are for softening
Like when baking, it’s best to mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately

    Brambleberry is a great source. My girls and I made bath bombs last summer. They are so much fun!! Not sure how commercial companies get them so smooth.
